Hulu is gearing up for a promising rest of the year with this content! 

 

Animaniacs Reboot

It’s time for Animaniacs! 

Hulu previously announced that it was rebooting the 1993 animated classic and now, there’s officially a premiere date!

According to TV Line, the 13-episode series will hit the streaming service on Friday, November 20. 

Yep, that’s right — new content to look forward to this fall. 

The reboot will focus on Yakko, Wakko, and Dot wreaking havoc as only they can. Fans will also get to see the revival of characters Pinky and the Brain in season 1. The series was already renewed for season 2 with a 2021 premiere date.

Love, Victor Season 2

Hulu has renewed Love, Victor for a second season. 

The series, a follow-up to the 2018 film, Love, Simon will pick up right where season left off — spoilers — Victor comes out to his parents. The coming-of-age story’s second season will “push the envelope,” according to co-showrunner Brian Tanen, which makes sense considering the series is exclusively being produced for Hulu and has a little more freedom. 

This is exciting for fans who want to explore themes of sexuality without a PG filter.

If you’re not aware, the series was initially set to debut on Disney+ before the streamer decided the content was too mature and modern for its audience. 

No premiere date has been set. 

 

Only Murders in the Building

Selena Gomez is making her way back to television and comedy. 

On Friday, it was announced that the singer and actress would join comedy icons Steve Martin and Martin Short in a new Hulu series titled Only Murders in the Building

According to Hulu’s synopsis: “The series follows three strangers (Martin, Short and Gomez) who share an obsession with true crime and suddenly find themselves wrapped up in one.” 

There are a lot of promising names attached to the project. Gomez is set to executive producer with Short, Jess Rosenthal, and This Is Us creator Dan Fogelman. 

Our guess is that the trio will witness a murder that they’ll have to navigate without implicating themselves. 

Alex Russo knows all about being in the wrong place at the wrong time, am I right?

No other details were available and a premiere date was not announced.

Grey’s Anatomy’s Sandra Oh stars as Professor Ji-Yoon Kim, the first female chair of a university’s English department, in the six-episode satire. Oh also serves as executive producer alongside creator Amanda Peet.
